Pippa Middleton: I felt bullied in the limelight

By Laura Elston

The Duchess of Cambridge's sister Pippa Middleton has described how she has felt "publicly bullied a little bit" since being propelled into the spotlight following the royal wedding.

Pippa, who gave her first ever TV interview to US journalist Matt Lauer for NBC's Today show, spoke of how it was difficult to read things about herself which were untrue.

Quizzed on whether she had faced criticism online, she said: "It's hard sometimes because I have felt publicly bullied a little bit just by, you know, when I read things that clearly aren't true or that, whichever way someone looks at it, it's a negative side.

"It is quite difficult. Because effectively I'm just paving my way and trying to live a life like any 30-year-old."
